São Paulo claimed the spotlight for another equestrian event recently when the Clube Hípico de Santo Amaro (CHSA) hosted an eventing competiton with obstacles ranging from 0m50 to 1m00 and international level with CCI1*, CCI2* and CCI3* competitions.
The club, which includes 330,000 square metres of woods and gardens, is located at the heart of São Paulo state’s capital city. The event awarded points within the following rankings for eventing:
• 2022 Santo Amaro’s Eventing Cup
• CBH Ranking
• FPH Efficiency Trophy
• 2022 ABHIR Eventing Championship
• 2022 BH Young Horses Ranking.
The discipline, considered an equestrian triathlon with dressage, cross-country and jumping phases, has made its way back in full force at CHSA, and since 2020 has been following the guidelines of rider and director Leonardo Vani Fernandes.
Besides being strong, smooth-riding and manageable, the Brazilian Sport Horse has also proven its speed and increased its participation in state-wide eventing competitions as well as at national and international levels. The breed has been widely awarded, which attracts new supporters to this kind of equestrian ‘marathon’.
